It’s time to rock and shop in the Ridge

This weekend, you can chill out with some cool music and bit of shopping in Bay Ridge!

On Friday, Irish jig your way to the Wicked Monk (9510 Third Ave. between 95th and 96th streets) where you can catch longtime local act Shilelagh Law returns to play its original Irish rock hits, as recorded on the album “Live at Connolly’s.” The show kicks off at 10 pm, and entry is $20.

Start your Saturday by jogging over to the Bay Ridge Library (7223 Ridge Blvd. between 72nd and 73rd streets) for a yoga class starting at 10:15 pm. Yoga veteran Kathleen Walker will lead flexers through a free class, starting with a 30-minute lesson on a yoga mat — provided by the library, if you don’t have your own — followed by a 45-minute stretch session in chairs. You can register at the information desk, or by calling (718) 748–5709.

And in the evening, you can dance on down to the Greenhouse Café (7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets) for a dose of a different sort of energy — the music of five-piece blues and rock ’n’ roll band On a Good Run, playing classic hits from Elvis, the Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Roy Orbison. The free show starts at 10 pm.

On Sunday, start your holiday shopping by checking out the free flea market at the Bay Ridge Jewish Center (405 81st St. between 80th and 81st streets). More than 50 vendors will be hawking their gifts, toys, and jewelry — and you will have plenty of time to leisurely browse the stalls, since it stays open from 9 am until 4 pm.
